I haven't been seeing alot of doe activity here as well. Now that the crops are out and we are getting colder temps, maybe we will see more doe's running around. Also, now that the doe's are starting thier estrus cycles, more doe's should be active during the day light. Seeing more young doe's could mean that the harvest in your area is starting to reduce your doe herd numbers. I'm in the same situation here, many young buck's, and few mature doe's.ORIGINAL: paulie
Passed up five young bucks during the early bow season, saw two shooters(too far). Since the firearm season started(sat 15th) I've seen two or three doe's(no shot) one young buck(1 1/2yr old), and a ton of fawns(no mamma's). Its like I'm hunting in a friggin 'deer orphanage'!! I've never seen so few doe's in this area! I figure either, it's due to the "early firearm" doe season or, DNR is gettin a bit too liberal with the 'crop damage' permits around here. whatever it is, it sucks!!
